Re: Unacclaimed Song Game: Rules, Signup and Discussion!

Can't wait to see this tournament organized and start listening.

I'm glad there's space for a second selection (or am I too late... maximum 64 right?).

My second choice is something that I think would sound a little off-kilter to those not exposed to Deerhoof, but it touches a really happy place inside of me.

Deerhoof - Milk Man

Deerhoof built up enough buzz to have their 2005 album Runners Four and 2006 Friend Opportunity get to the bubbling under level, but this title track from their 2004 album serves as what I think is their most fundamental musical statement. I'll save more thoughts for later when it's put into competition. Enjoy!

p.s. The youtube clip was cut off at the end so I provided a Hype Machine link

Hey Moonbeam,

I just tried my link, and it looks like it's broken. Could you replace it with this youtube link? Sorry about that...I couldn't actually view the original link at the time... :(

new link for Jars of Clay, "Liquid"

Thanks!


Strangely enough, I got your first link to work but can't get this one, as it seems to be blocked in my country!

Well, I guess we could post both then...

Re: Unacclaimed Song Game: Rules, Signup and Discussion!

I also though of nominate a Girly Sound track! Especially: White Babies, 6 DIck Pimp, Ant in Alaska, Gigalo, Love Song and In Love With Yourself. I'll save some of them for the next round! It's pretty hard to me to pick underrated songs, because almost everything i have is AM certificated, the artist, song or album (bubbling under counting)

If there's room for my second nomination, it's Mark Joseph's Lady Lady

Like my first nomination, I have a better version in my music collection. The original version I have preserves the song's authenticity with every sound on it made and arranged by Joseph. This version I found on Youtube is after some American producer has got hold of his album and made him change the lyrics, rearrange and rerecord it.

Now that we have our songs, please let me know how you feel the tournament should be run here.
